Ok so i just drove for an hour with my dad. Hadda drive to Cardinal, ON to pick up my new aquarium. It's 30 gallons. I go tit for 30$. I thought it was a good deal but I dunno anymore. It doesn't have a top or anything so yeah. It's in pretty good shape. Apparently it doesnt leak. They let it sit with water in it for 24hrs+ and said it didnt leak. It has this black electrical tape on it. the guy said it's prolly just to hide the corners. its sort of ugly. think it's safe to take off? also it has this blue paint on the back of the tank. what would be the easiest/best way to get it off without hurting/scratching the glass?
there seems that there used to be one of those LED strip temp things on it but was taken off. how would I get the glue off the tank? its very unsightly lol. its a little dirty but i think some hot water and a cloth and ill be able to get it all off. i know not to use like soap n stuff cuz that would be bad for any future fishies that will be going in right? :P
since i have nothing im going to need to find a decent filter for a 30gal tank, and gravel n stuff. how much gravel would i need for a 30 gal? i wouldnt mind getting sand or something since im planning on putting loaches [especially dojo loaches] in there and they like to burrow but im not sure if ill be able to find it here in town.
how much sand/gravel would i need for a 30 gal? :)
does anyone know a good DIY top i could try and forge, or would it be pretty easy to find a top for a 30gal tank?
also any advice or ideas for decor or fish are much appreciated :)
anyway onto the pics. ignore the messyness of my room lol
i havent got all my stuff up in my room yet so some stuff is lying around lol.
here is the glue [any idea on how to get it off? D:]
